He’s here, and he’s beautiful.
New Phillies slugger Nick Castellanos slammed his first home run in a Phillies uniform Monday afternoon. A first-pitch no doubt about it shot that cleared the tiki bar in left field at BayCare Ballpark in Clearwater.
That was an absolute BOMB. No word on the distance, but I’m guessing that was 450 feet easily.
The 2-run shot – Bryce Harper was on first after a single – gave the Phillies an early 2-0 lead over the Orioles. The Phils have shown their power as the weather warms in Florida over the past week, including eight dingers in their previous two games.
Castellanos is coming off a 2021 season where he reached career marks in batting average (.309), home runs (34), and OPS (.939).
Nothing like a monster home run to warm you up on a frigid late-March morning.
